    Billy Frank changed fish debate, policy in Northwest

    Billy Frank’s activism began four decades before the court decision that would validate tribal rights to salmon and other fish, which comprise a critical component of traditional Northwest Indian culture. Frank, who grew up in a Nisqually tribal fishing family near Olympia, was only 14 years old in 1945, when he was first arrested for salmon fishing.
